    Cape Town - Jarrad Hoeata of the Highlanders has been issued with an off-field yellow card for contravening Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous Tacking when he made contact with Crusaders hooker Corey Flynn at a breakdown.

    The incident occurred in the 20th minute of the match between the Crusaders and Highlanders at AMI Stadium in Christchurch on Saturday.

    An off-field yellow card may be issued by the SANZAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the red card threshold for citings.

    In this case the incident was not acted on by the referee for the match. On further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.

    The Crusaders won the match 24-8.
